Re: Vietnam Airlines mulls buying up to 100 Boeing 737 Max

It's surprising for me that an airline like VN doesn't operate 738/320-sized aircraft. Why is that? They have the demand for bigger single aisle. HAN-SGN is the 7th busiest route in the world. Their destinations are not that far away due to geographic locations so they don't need the range of the s...

Good move. Now I want to hear some news about the new narrow body and A350-2000.

Re: Which Frame Will Be More Efficient....The A35J or the 779?

From wiki: Dumping, in economics, is a kind of injuring pricing, especially in the context of international trade . It occurs when manufacturers export a product to another country at a price below the normal price with an injuring effect. You can't dump when it's the same country. It's just a good...

Re: Which Frame Will Be More Efficient....The A35J or the 779?

It's getting its lunch taken left and right by the clean sheet 787. you have to look at the reason : Boeing price dumping. Saying effect A is due prerequisite B ( better tech ) but the actual mechanism is C ( cheap skates ) is rather popular with some posters but intellectually insincere. From wiki...

Re: Which Frame Will Be More Efficient....The A35J or the 779?

If your logic on fuselage design was correct... We wouldn’t see thousands of orders on backlog for the 737 MAX. The backlog consists mostly of MAX8 orders, which is competing with another old design. What you can compare, though, is to another clean sheet design. The CS300/A220-330 currently sits a...

Re: Which Frame Will Be More Efficient....The A35J or the 779?

The A350 obviously. It's an all new design, incorporating decades of design advances. The 777X, even with a new wing, will still be a compromise with a 25 year old fuselage design. That is also why Boeing tried to distance themselves from the A350, among others by trying to stretch the -9 a step ab...

Re: Bamboo Airways to order 20 B787-9's

Honestly everyone is out here talking bout the 787 and I'm sitting like ''This is a startup. From Vietnam. And they have ordered 46 planes before they launch. AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO FINDS SOMETHING WRONG HERE'' AFAIK they're owned by a large conglomerate that are looking to expand into the rapid gro...

Re: Leeham: VLA era is over; are 779/A35K too large?

The 747-8 wasn't that expensive to develop IIRC ~$5bn after the delays etc. Boeing would have been better off launching the rewinged 747 it had previously floated, assuming it could have executed competently (big if). That plane would at least have sold serious pax models, might have killed the A38...

Re: United eyes A330-800 for fleet replacement

After speaking with a few people I know at UA corporate, I've been told to expect an order from Boeing and/or Embraer. I firmly believe there will be no additional Airbus orders. If United wanted the A330NEO or the A321NEO, they would have ordered already. Hell, they'd likely have ordered the A321-...
